"Just south of Salem, Oregon, Willamette Valley Vineyards has everything you need for a romantic fall wine getaway. Perched on a hill above the vineyards, the tasting room, dining room and guest suites — not to mention the cellar rich with the aromas of the fresh harvest and oak barrels — all have a view of the vineyards ablaze with fall colors and the broad valley below. The Willamette Valley Vineyards story is one of passion for the vineyards and fine wines coupled with environmental and community stewardship. Since founding it in 1983, Jim Bernau has developed Willamette Valley Vineyards into one of the best producers of pinot noir in the country."
